Good luck, that is a ton of work. The body work coming after the welding is a major pain, I spent 20-30 hours sanding and finishing mine and I'm still not happy how it came out.

Yes it is a lot of work but short of finding another bed it is the best option for the moment,,I have about the same amount of body work as you did

I am going to use a flange tool on panel and with outer wheelhouse removed and tire off truck I think I can weld from the back side and avoid some of the body work you had to do , If it works an I think it will I will not be grinding out any welds just filling the seam, this worked for me on a jeep roof I had to do , I will post pictures when I get to that stage

I don't envy anyone doing extensive body welding. The work I did on my bed doesn't look like much, but believe me I thought it would never end.

well got up this morning and while waiting on mail, I cut panel and added a lip all the way around with the flange tool an it also can add holes for quick welding,,still had to tack some on outside but very small welds ,,an with the new lip edge the welds are down in lip that it cuts way down on warping because of heat an grinding , took about 45 minutes or so and also have new outer wheel house in place and braces bolted on to hold until I weld more tomorrow as with the mail came other parts to start putting on new bumpers ,,but still waiting on one blend door before I can get dash back in which is delaying me,,it looks better than picture shows as it should feather out nice with some block sanding after adding filler ,, and still have other side to do and more body work on the cab on that side
